Remotely lock multiple remote computers to prevent
unauthorized access to data. Just like pressing Ctrl Alt Del from the Cloud. |
This action locks Windows remotely, forcing users to login again next time they access their workstations. This free tool to remote lock computer works similar to using PowerShell or psexec to lock Windows screen remotely. It’s also a good alternative to using remote access or remote assistance tools (such as TeamViewer) to lock computers that users forgot to lock.
Imagine if CEO forgets to lock computer before leaving the office and maintenance worker comes in and accesses it. Locking remote machines is a good security practice. Action1 can lock multiple remote machines at a time, executing a Lock Workstation command. This minimizes the risk of unauthorized access to data, because all workstations are locked remotely. It works in the same way as if you pressed Ctrl+Alt-Delete on remote desktop (RDP), which doesn’t work normally and you can only remotely lock computer through command prompt, such as 'rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation'.
